Bottle from Smiths. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is moslty lightly roasted malts, nuts, and light spices. The taste is also pretty light; some roasted malts, some odd sweet flavors, and overall a light crisp flavor. Decent.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Light brown color with a thin head. The lager had a malty flavor with some light spices in the finish which was also very dry. Some smokey and deep dark malts used.

Poured a translucent copper with a short, slightly lacing white head. Smells metallic and clean. Flavor was malty and did taste like beer. Wasn’t great, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d read. Tastes slightly medicinal and a faint hint of candy. Finish was clean and sublte. Not the greatest beer I’ve had, but not the worst.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
14oz bottle. Thin, watery, clear golden pour with no head. Absence of any aroma. Prepare to cringe after your first sip; the beer tastes like pills without the sweet coating on them. Aside from bitterness, I could taste honey and something else. Gets a little more palatable later. Absolutely horrid aftertaste. Clearly, something has gone wrong in this beer. Not recommended.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
I paid a whopping $0.50 for this, and might have been robbed a quarter. Coppery amber with a thin head. It looks nice, but that is where it ends. Malt with a distinct metallic odor. Somewhat sweet, malty metal flavor, seems like some sort of spice was added, a bad one at that. Almost could not finish.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Dark woody amber with a thin head. Little to no aroma. The flavor is quite tart ... hint of ashen smoke, maybe, but almost puckeringly tart predominately. Not a fan.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium malty aroma. Pale tan head, with a reddish coppery color. Slightly smoky malt for start, arguably a bit of coffee in the middle, defaulting to a rather (for a malty lager) dry finish, with malt flavor. Pretty minimal hop, but a nice alternative to the overly sweet German dark lagers. I like it, and I usually find lagers distasteful.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep amber, quite hazy, moderate fizzy sand colored head, spotty lacing. Grainy nose, slightly nutty. Dull sweet malt start, slightly roasty, becoming more grainy and nutty as it progresses. Body and mouthfeel are average. Fairly clean finish, given the graininess that starts out up front. A bit of tang on the exit, even seems a tad bit citrusy. Not half bad, but not really my favorite style. Thanks Jordan for the bottle!
